Color Combo Stamping Vacation Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Saturday is Color Combo time again over at the Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog. (I am posting this a bit early cause I will be a bit busy this weekend.) This month the Combo is:

Hunter Green and Rust

I have used stamps from our Fabulous Sponsor this month: Mark's Finest Papers. This set is called Thankful Mums and Pumpkins. I made two Design Team cards for this challenge. I wanted to show that just using a different coloring medium will give very different results from the same image. On the first card, the pumpkins are colored with Copics. And, I also made my own background paper by stamping the small maple leaf (also in the set) on Real Rust cs (Stampin' Up). I added a strip of Handsome Hunter CS (SU) and a green ribbon.

And, here is a detail shot.

On the second card, I colored the pumpkins with Distress inks and a wet brush. I also used a Spellbinders die. The DP is from Provo Craft. The Sentiment is also in the same stamp set. I added a ribbon and some pearl stickers.

And here is a close up of the water coloring.

These two cards are going out to friends or family for Thanksgiving. Make your project and link it up at Stamping Vacation to be entered in the monthly drawing. The prize is FOUR Mark's Finest Stamp sets and a gift certificate. What could be better than that??

I want to present Thanksgiving wish card to my all friends, who are going with me. Could you or anyone recommend me greeting card, which can show Thanksgiving and adventure trip? It will be different theme and total creativity is involved to make it.
